Hot Chocolate Krispies Well, it’s another snow day in the Northeast. Dude, this weather is getting really sucky. The kids are home from school again and while I love the little buggers, they have confiscated my itouch, played every board game known to man, built 13 different “forts” (with my good pillows) and gotten into no less than 427 arguments. Now, like a good mom, I have plopped them down in front of the television to zone out to Scooby Doo reruns. They were outside sledding earlier, but it always takes no less than 30 minutes to get them bundled up so they can go outside and play for 5. And I didn’t mention that 22 of those 30 minutes were spent trying to solve the mystery of the missing glove. I don’t understand how 1 glove can consistently go missing every time I need it. What never fails, though, is when they come inside from their exhausting 3 minutes of play, they demand hot chocolate. Even I will admit that hot chocolate is a pretty redeeming factor of the snow day. Hot Chocolate Krispies You’re welcome.

Santa Hat Party Mix - Cookies and Cups This past weekend my husband and I got together with some friends and had a game night. Game nights are fun, aren’t they? Aren’t they? Well, they are supposed to be fun. Until… Men vs. Apparently as a married adult it gets all kindergarten on game nights. When you are in elementary school it’s always boys vs. girls. The sexes seem to come together in the mid teens through your twenties when you are wearing love goggles and you play “couples”. After you have been married for a while, you squeegee the steam off the goggles and it’s all boys vs. girls again. It all seems like good fun when the games start. Then, slowly but surely, the tide starts to turn. It would be remiss of me not to mention that I was on the losing side of the tide. Sometimes it happens like that. It would also be remiss of me not to tell you that this was a rematch. We have lost before. Losing is not so much fun. Especially when you were the ones that called for the rematch. We just knew that the first loss was a…fluke, if you will.

Tuna Stuffed Peppers Macnifique! Sunday was my cheat day. Marking the end of my 4 week primal challenge. I could go on and tell you in detail about how my day went, about the foods I ate and how it all made me feel, but I wouldn’t want to bore you. So, in short: I confirmed that pasta is pretty insignificant in my life, as is bread. It wasn’t just any ice cream mind, It was Chin Chin Laboratorists ice cream! With a serving of 80% Valrhona chocolate ice cream topped with fleur de sel caramel sauce and grilled white chocolate chunks, I was in cheat heaven! I have now learned my lesson! Just have the ice cream – two servings preferably! Having had the chance to prove I am capable of eating a disciplined primal diet, and having results to show for it, I was ready to get back on track as soon as possible. Tuna stuffed peppers have become quite a regular item on my menu. They are quick, easy to make and just damn delicious! They are also very versatile. These things really are quite versatile. Tuna Stuffed Peppers Ah!
